    Heroic WW I Russian Infantryman, Winner of Three St George Crosses.

    Heroic WW I Russian Infantryman, Winner of Three St George Crosses.

    Measures 2 7/8" by 4 5/8". Postcard printing on reverse would indicate that image was trimmed down from a slightly larger picture. Soldier in a fur papakha with three St. George crosses on his left chest, cigarette in his left hand. (The chemistry of pre-WW I black and white film has caused the ribbons to appear completely dark.) Reverse has penciled inscription addressed to the soldier's father - unfortunately rendered largely illegible when photo was trimmed.

    Good condition. At some point in its history, someone unfortunately tried to fold it in half length-wise and it caused the image to crack at numerous places. The soldier's face is still recognizable, however. WW I photographs of men who were multiple winners of the St. George and this close to becoming "cavaliers" (holders of all four degrees)are very uncommon.
